with mitt romney. he's at the event talking a little bit about the message we heard from mitt romney. clearly it's important for him to reach the working class. that came in some of the comments he made regarding trade with china. what does he need to do? what does his team think they need to do to make sure he holds on to virginia? >> reporter: suzanne, as you know, all politics is local. virginia is a big military state. no surprise mitt romney would come to this crowd of veterans here to talk about defense issues. he talked a whole lot about president obama and the deal that was made with congress for sequestration cuts that would impact the defense department greatly. mitt romney said, if he were elected president, he would reverse those cuts. at a certain point during this speech, he talked about how he would actually add personnel to the united states military, not cut personnel. of course, that's going to raise the question where did that money come from? the romney campaign says all that is paid for. but you also heard mitt romney talk about the gd pfrnlts report that came ou
now and you mitt romney. we talked a lot about that red line whether the president is clear enough making a red line with iran. netanyahu publicly criticizing the administration for not doing that romney citing with netanyahu. take a listen to the family we met with last night who are supporting president obama. >> i think he has made it hard for the united states to keep israel with this special ally status that it's had because the united states can't be pushed around by anyone. i just think that obama is being very rational and reasonable to a bully right now. >> the president taking the iran threat seriously enough right now or does netanyahu have a point? >> he has built an international coalition. he has succeeded in buildi in i embargo against iran unprecedented. >> mitt romney said things like president obama has "thrown allies like israel under the bus." he also said on "60 minutes" over the weekend that the president made a mistake by not meeting with netanyahu. the next family we met with certainly agrees, says the president still has time to meet with netanyahu. here is
're already talking about debate expectations for next week and kevin, who is a senior romney advisor, described the president as cy young, one of the great all-time pitchers in baseball. you can't really set expectations higher than that for your opponent, suzanne. >> we know that president obama actually won ohio 51-47%. why are they actually thinking that they've got some wiggle room here, that they've got some influence? what do they think they can do in the weeks ahead? >> they're going to hit this economic message as much as possible. we heard mitt romney talking about that earlier this morning. these polls that have come out do show that he still has an advantage over the president when it comes to who it best managed the debt and the deficit, who would cut the deficit, and so we heard mitt romney saying earlier this morning that the national debt stands at $16 trillion. right now if president obama gets four more years, he predicted the national debt would skyrocket to $20 trillion. he is putting that message out there. i had a chance to talk to mitt romney about some of this
that -- he did sort of strike some military themes here at valley forge, talking about mitt romney, of course. he is trying to make the case that the best defense is a better economy tying national security to the economy, but one very interesting thing that happened here, suzanne, mitt romney at the very end of this speech here said he is going to win pennsylvania. he said that earlier. he said it again he is going to pennsylvani the polls -- or latest cnn poll of polls shows mitt romney down by ten points here. it would be a very tough uphill climb for h to win tstate. >> right. >> i think it's in the romney campaign's interest to expand the map, and i think that's what they're trying to do. >> john mccain didn't win pennsylvania the last go round either. ditheyhange in any significant way when they look at the demographics and they get some sort of optimism or confidence from that? >> well, you know, pat toomey, the pennsylvania senate repuan annnced m romney. he was able to wi t state, and even though he had some credentials, he was ahead of the ub forroh at one time, and so this is a sta
in the white house. >> we just got word actually that they're on the phone as we speak. mitt romney talking to benjamin netanyahu. telanovella. wow, maria, you want to respond to that? >> well, here's what i'll say. look, there has been a lot of hooplah around, you know, what has been done, what meetings the president is having, what meetings he isn't having, but i got to tell you, suzanne, from the standpoint of having been in some of these bilateral meetings, the pomp and circumstance that surrounds those kinds of meetings especially at places like the u.n., nothing of substance gets done. i actually prefer that our president is on the phone with prime minister netanyahu today. he was on the phone for an hour last week. he has been on the phone with other leaders from the middle east constantly throughout all of the chaos that is happening. that is much more important from a substantive standpoint than from any sort of perception standpoint of who he met or who he didn't meet, and we also saw the prime minister walk back his criticism. >> we got to leave it there. anna, maria, good to see
be a game changer? forget all that talk about romney, the amateur debater. republican governor chris christie says the debate will be a game changer. >> i've seen mitt romney do this before. he's going to come in wednesday night. he's going to lay out his vision for america. he's going to contrast what his view is with what the president's record is. the president's view for the future. this whole race is going to be turned upsidedown come thursday morning. >> oh, but the question is to zing or not to zing? word on the street is mitt romney has been practicing zingers since august. the kind of zinger that resonates, like when lloyd benson said to dan quayle, you ever know jack kennedy? of course, benson lost. as for president obama, though, his camp says there will be no time for zingers. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. but what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard working americans. >> but not in a smug, elitist, arugala loving way. at least that's what his a
points. ten-point lead is bad also from a media narrative perspective, the more we talk about romney losing, battling ohio, the more that becomes a perception among voters. the romney campaign doesn't -- certainly is not happy with this poll out today. >> talking about romney and ohio, that's where he is today, to gain some traction. he was joined this morning by a guy, i know many of us will recognize a really world class, world famous athlete, ohio native who got up there and talked about winning, talked about success. here is jack nicklaus. >> when i was competing, i didn't lean on someone else in tough times. i knew i had to do it on -- what i had to do on the golf course to succeed and when i won, i certainly didn't apologize for my success. >> so, peter hamby, i play devil's advocate. i love golf. working on my swing. who doesn't love jack nicklaus. here you have romney, needing middle class votes in ohio, how is he helped by a man who has been the face of professional golf, doesn't even live in ohio anymore? >> it is hard to hate on jack. the guy has 18 masters. look, he said
it -- fascinating that so many people are talking about romney had a gaffe. it turns out he was right. that one that it was wrong to put pout an n a statement -- criticizing the -- apologizing for the video which the administration continued to do and obama will do again today in his u.n. speech. but also, you know, who had the foreign policy gaffes? it has been president obama. president obama went on "60 minutes" and called what's happening in the middle east bumps in the road. first ambassador killed since 1979 is a bum open the rop on t? >> mr. obama came back and said bumps in the road meant there is going to be problems in the middle east you have to deal with. >> i'm sure -- >> i'm just trying to be fair. >> i'm sure he tried to spin it. well, no. i mean, the thing is no one is fair when mitt romney supposedly makes a gaffe that turns out not to be a gaffe. when president obama says something like that, everybody is busy explaining it away. this was a major foreign policy gaffe. that same interview, he said that israel -- complaints from israel were just noise. referred to israel's compl
. mitt romney losing major ground there, according to new polls. before we go there, got to talk about one problem, that both candidates agree the world is running out of time to fix. let's turn to the united nations general assembly where the much anticipated speech byo outgoing president was overshadowed by mohamed morsi. listen to how he introduced himself. >> translator: i am the first egyptian civilian president elected democratically and free, following a great, peaceful revolution halted by the entire world. >> let's go richard roth, covers the u.n. for us. listen to the speech, it sounds like he's stepping it up, ready to be this world leader, world negotiator. is that fair that he's made the move from muslim brotherhood to world leader? >> reporter: well, i think he's still both things. the leader of egypt, decades ago, nasser and others, they had a prominent place when it came to the middle east. there has been this vacuum ever since. president mubarak had never even been here at the u.n. in the last 15 years and played a much quieter role on the global stage in the middle ea
barack obama and mitt romney are in full political mode. so i talked with candy earlier and she believes the pressure is on romney to nail this first debate. if you agree with that, does that mean that he's got to try really hard to answer every question in detail or carefully avoid certain issues or topics that might be pitfalls for him? >> i agree with that, mitt romney is behindnd and even if he wasn't behind, the president won in 2008 if he can hold his voters from 2008, he can win. romney is the one that has to dislodge voters from the president. i look at the polling in this case, it does turn the expectations on its head in one respect. the challenge is not so much to make a case for president obama, as it is to make a case for himself. it has been able to --. he will do better over the next four years, in particular, he is suffering from -- that he does not relate to or really care about the lives of average working people, i think that is much more of a challenge for him, he didn't really do it as much as he needed to at the convention, that i think is job number one, more than
preparing as well. we have been talking over and over about the so-called expectations game where the romney folks try to, you know, make romney out to be the king kong of all debaters and when the romney folks talk, obama is suddenly superman. candy crowley has an interesting take on all of this. let's watch this together. >> reporter: apparently romney supporter and republican governor chris christie didn't get the memo. >> wednesday night is the restart of this campaign and i think you'll see the numbers start to move right back into the other direction. >> reporter: note to governor christie, no, no, no, no. sop for predebate chatter is to lower expectations for your guy by raising expectations for the other guy. like this. >> president obama is a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. >> reporter: because this is a bipartisanly accepted strategy like this. >> we expect it all along that governor romney will have a good night, he's prepared more than any candidate in history and he's shown himself to be a very
, a lot of republicans are talking of the upcoming debates and romney's best chance to turn things around. this is newt gingrich. >> i think it depends almost entirely on mitt personally. i debated him and most of them i did pretty well. the last two down to life and death and we were in florida and he was in danger of losing the nomination, he came in fired up decisive prepared, aggressive, energetic and to be honest i think he beat me both times. if he would be as direct as assertive, as firm with barack obama as he was with me in florida he'll win the debate going away and within three days the polls will change dramatically because he'll ha the case we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. >> so that first debate is next wednesday in denver and did you know that early voting has for the first time today voting in a swing state, iowa. guess who's there john king. iowa city, iowa. john, are you seeing many early voters where you are? >> reporter: we have seen quite a few of them brooke. we had a camera here in iowa city and des moines earlier today. i
not heard these candidates talk about much, have we? nothing from romney during the republican convention, very little from obama, especially at the u.n. this last week. the debates will likely be a different story because this weekend the death toll for americans in the war surpassed the 2000 mark. the soldier who made the helmet cam video suffered only minor wounds and has returned to duty. but it's amazing that he suffered only minor wounds when you see this incredible story. his fight to survive is gripping. take a look. >> fire! hey! i'm moving down! ah! ah! [ bleep ]! oh! i'm hit! i'm hit! i'm hit! i'm hit! ah! [ bleep ] help me! i'm hit! i'm hit! i'm hit! i'm hit! i'm hit! i'm hit! i'm hit! i'm hit! >> lest we forget what our men and women have been going through in afghanistan for the last 11 years. joining us now cnn contributor, i need to reiterate the number of times we heard that soldier yelling i'm hit, i'm hit. he was not shot, but the shrapnel from that gun being fired out of his hand did injure him. he did sustain minor injuries, the pentagon confirms for us. i need to get
thus far on style, on likability, so romney -- romney, what, needs to talk about his family, your words. let me quote you, you say yes, he's tried to do that many, many times before, but there is always hoping that this time it will work. why will it work this time? >> it might work because more people are watching. when he talked about it during the convention, the ratings were really very, very low on that. and he had to share the platform with everyone else. with christie and with rubio. this time around it is him versus the president. and this is his chance to throw out some relatable points, to say things like i'm in public service because of my father. i want to improve the country because of my family. i think if he can throw one or two pointsike that, he can turn it around. but don't expect him to start crying. his not that guy. he shouldn't pretend to be that guy. he shouldn't pretend to be ronald reagan because he's not ronald reagan. he should simply run on his credentials and experience. and that's what he'll mostly try to do. >> as you point out, not take newt gingrich's ad
going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new york times reported over the weekend that, you know, mitt romney is preparing all the zingers for the debate and you heard people saying maybe he's not preparing zingers. a lot of this is the head fake to the head fake to the head fake. of course, mitt romney and the president are both probably working on lines of attack that they'll deliver at this debate. that is sort of standard operating procedure. you saw that scott brown, elizabeth warren debate last night in massachusetts. this is what campaigns do. this is what candidates do. but i will tell you that mitt romney has been behind closed doors for much of the day today, in debate preparations, brooke, with the sparring partner, ohio senator rob portman. and perhaps the day's most notable development in the day with not very many development is that they just stopped for lunch at chipotle. they put a wrap if you don't mind the pun, on the morning debate session. i'm sorry. i had to do it. >> pu
a lot of this campaign is mitt romney and barack obama talking about how they would work in washington. and as we know the american public are so frustrated right now with how washington is operating or is not operating at all. so there's a lot on the line for mitt romney, barack obama tomorrow night. tens of millions of people will be watching. of course, a lot here on cnn. there is over 3,000 journalists who are actually credentialed to come and cover this debate. 700 of them are from other countries. so the whole world will be watching. >> and jim lahr is the moderator for debate number one. how long do the candidates get to answer the questions? because some candidates are pretty long-winded. >> reporter: they are, and that's going to be the struggle and one of the challenges for the moderator torrow as well as the other debate moderators, including candy crowley who will be moderating a debate later this month. 30 seconds to about a minute to answer a question. and of course there's a rebut l rebuttal. if we do see sharp exchange back and forth, sometimes the train can get off th
he outlines it. when you talk about romney's strength he says he's smooth, knowledge able, excellent first lines and tends to pivot. he says president obama, his strengths, he can be detached, he has an ability to focus and crystallize that's very strong on his reasoning. donna, do you see either one of these as being accurate here? do you think that there's some sort of opportunity, if you will for the president to attack on romney's strengths or is he pretty formidable? >> look, i think president obama is preparing very well for this debate based on what i've seen in the newspapers, but, you know, this is like the opening night on broadway where you're both playing to the audience and the room as well as to the public out at large and if you get a good review as i hope president obama will receive, then that will continue to help him, you know, lead in the polls and get people out to vote. i have to tell my good friend anna president obama has not been in a one on one debate since october 2008 unless he's doing something behind closed doors with joe biden. mitt romney has been the
clinton, talking about romney's appearance at the clinton global initiative. here you go. >> mitt romney today came out with this line, went down very well with the audience, as you expected. there is one thing we learn, a few words from bill clinton can do someone a lot of good. what words would you have for mitt romney given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think, you know, the debates are very important for him. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think if he's going to double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties because we now know that the overwhelming number of those people work and have children and the reason they don't pay federal income taxes is the median income is as low as it was in 1995 now, and until the current election season, republicans and democrats supported both the child tax credit and the earned income tax credit. this is a rejection of basically more than three decades of bipartisan policy to support working families. it is not a bunch of freeloaders. >> there he goes. piers morgan bringing up the 47% from the secretly videot
campaign events. romney held a veterans for romney event in springfield, talking about the need to keep america's military strong. >> i happen to subscribe to ronald reagan's maxim that peace comes through strength. i want to have a military that so strong no one wants to test it. [ applause ] and there's a long-term threat to our military capability, and to our national security, and it relates to something that fuels and builds our military. and that's our economy. you have to have a strong economy. >> president obama was rallying supporters in virginia beach. that was a couple minutes ago. he talked about creating opportunities for everybody. >> we don't believe anybody is entitled to success in this country. we don't believe government should help folks who aren't willing to try to help themselves. but we do believe in something called opportunity. we do believe in a country where hard work pays off, where responsibility is rewarded, where everyone gets a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody plays by the same rules. we believe in america where no matter wh
of their surrogates have been saying similar things. listen to robert gibbs on the sunday talk shows. >> look, mitt romney, i think, has an advantage because he's been through 20 of these debates in this primaries over the last year. he even bragged he was declared the winner en16 of those debates. i think in that sense having been through this much more recently than president obama, think he starts with an advantage. >> reporter: carol, if you listen to these campaigns, i guess neither of these guys will be any good in denver wednesday night. who do you believe? >> i think there have been some polls that people mostly say president obama will win the debates. remember in 2008, obama's debate performance when he said this? >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary, no doubt about it. >> i appreciate that. >> okay. so he said, you're likable enough. that didn't go over too well with the voting public. in thanks for that trim down memory lane. that was from the primaries back in '08. >> its true the president hasn't debated since 2008. our

different polls to that six-point lead for the president. again, we are talking ohio here, very, very important state for mitt romney. we will, again, hear from him shortly as he visits this town called vendalia, north of dayton. we'll keep you posted on that. >>> now to this, strange bedfellows here. you see this picture on the right, you bill clinton, on the left, you have mitt romney. romney today addressed the clinton global initiative in new york. here's mitt romney on rubbing shoulders with the former president. >> all i got to do now is wait a couple of days for that bounce to happen. >> so, romney speaks before the clinton initiative. and shortly there after bill clinton spoke to, where is the big reveal, this guy. piers morgan with many an interview this week. good to see you again. how did that go? how did that go? you and bill clinton? >> he's fantastic, isn't he? i spent half an hour with him. he's just the single most charismatic, impressive politician there is in the world. and many people feel that. one of the more intesting exchanges i withhim, idamendmen at running ag
not been gaffes by mitt romney. this is mitt romney. this is not the first time he talked about not caring about people less fortunate than him. he said he was not concerned about the very poor. this is not like a misstep. it's a consistent theme with him and it's up to the voters to see if they agree with him. it's not gaffes, it's him. >> how does mitt romney have to appear. does he have to be aggressive? what is the right tone? when we saw him before when he was running for the nominee, he could be a little bit aggressive. remember that point when he said to rick perry, i bought you 10,000 -- not going over in the presidential debates, right? >> mitt romney seemed to function well when he was coming from behind. anything that could give them hope, when he seems to be coming from somebody else having the momentum, he seems better as a frontrunner, and if he has hope going in, if he is able to take that and be aggressive and attack president obama, because let's face it, the president is still vulnerable and the only reason why romney is not winning is because romney has been an absolute
